THOSE brave enough to learn to drive in London take longer to pass their tests. (Jay like many of our customers rose to the challenge!)
A new study by Privilege Car Insurance shows that learners in Belvedere, South London have a pass-rate of just 31%. Shedding L-plates isn’t much easier north of the Thames either, with just 32% passing in Wanstead, North East London.
That’s compared to the 70% of new drivers who pass learning on the roads in Kelso, Scotland and 69% in Lochgilphead, Scotland.
Charlotte Fielding from the car insurance firm said: “The general rule is that if you are driving on busier roads and complex road systems, your driving test is likely to be tougher.”
